I don't really have cowboys. But I do have two wonderful sons who are hard-working, brave and adventurous. I don't discuss my family very often on my blog, but perhaps I should. I have an awesome family and I'm very proud of them! When my oldest son graduated from college in Michigan, he accepted a job offer in Texas. He bravely packed his belongings and headed to the lone star state. He didn't know a soul there, but he's created a wonderful life for himself now. His birthday is coming up so I made him a fun gift sack. The smaller bag will be used for my younger son, who is the sweetest guy and always makes time for his Mom. (ie. he brings me Gigi's cupcakes...for no reason!)
I had a lot of fun making these bags. I used my gift bag punch board to create a bag out of a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper. I'snt that awesome? That punch board is making me look at my paper stash in a whole new way! I used my gelli plate to create painted prints. I die cut stars from the prints and made fun stamped stars to embellish the bags. And of course I had to add a couple glittered embellishments as well. :)
